  1. I have an Asus EeePc 1015PED which cannot power on when I press the power on button. The laptop starts up for about 1 second then dies. How can I tell if this is a motherboard problem? Tried it without battery but also encounters same issue.

    Try different power supply (can be hard) and also try reseating the RAM if possible.

    Ok, will try to find a suitable power supply. FYI, this laptop has not been used very much, I.e. it's been unplugged for about 2 weeks before this happened, will that matter?
